Changing lives and creating healthy homes

We are looking forward to accepting your donations again starting on february 1, 2021.

Your donations help us create a safe, comfortable community for women experiencing homelessness across Los Angeles.

Please check back for updates and to schedule a donation drop-off in February. 
We will not accept unscheduled donation drop-offs.


For the health and safety of our community, DWC is limiting donations to:

  • Gift cards to DTLA stores like Food 4 Less, CVS, Ralph’s, and Target, which allow women overcoming homelessness to shop for the items they need most. Gift cards in $15 or $20 amounts will enhance the gift baskets we’re preparing to distribute for the holidays.
  • Items on our Amazon Wish List, which most accurately reflects the current needs of the women we serve.
  • Snack Packs or pre-made to-go meals for the 200 women we serve daily. Please contact Mitzuy Ley at if you and/or your group would like to donate Snack Packs or pre-made meals. Click here for kit assembly instructions. We will not accept unscheduled donation drop-offs.

Gift cards can be shipped directly to:
Downtown Women’s Center
Attn: Development
442 S. San Pedro Street
Los Angeles, CA 90013
